Jungheinrich Pneumatic Tire Forklift

Checking your Fork Truck for Safety
A fork truck, similar to any industrial equipment, must be utilized carefully. Unlike an automobile, a fork truck is steered from the rear wheel and therefore has a different center of balance. Anybody working within the vicinity of a fork truck and anyone utilizing this machinery must understand safe operating procedures and workplace safety guidelines.

Safe operation of a fork truck initially includes checking the truck before utilizing it. Operators must inspect for potential dangers like worn tires and fuel leaks. The lifts, forks and the overhead guard must be inspected carefully. The safety handle must be utilized just when the forklift is being mounted.

The lights, horns and alarms must be checked to guarantee that they are operating properly. Gauges and monitors should be adjusted properly. The seat should be adjusted and safety belt fastened before starting the truck.

To avoid tipping the equipment, take turns cautiously and always choose the low rate speed when driving. If the load blocks the vision of the operator, the truck must be driven in reverse gear. Be alert of the location of any pedestrians and obstacles when driving.

in order to prevent any risk of injury, the driver should always sit inside the cage enclosure and keep all parts of the body inside. The forks must be kept several inches above the floor when driving. Never raise or lower lifts while you are driving or the truck can become unstable. Do not allow anybody to walk under lift when the engines are running.

Stopping at intersections and watching for approaching traffic are basics for driving safely. It is a good idea to sound the horn before proceeding as well as periodically when operating in aisles. That way, you would warn any approaching individual to your presence.
